A complete automated packing line for crêpes

A French food company dedicated to the production of wheat and buckwheat crepes brought forth a recurring challenge in the industry. The customer was doing the packaging process manually, which required a considerable investment in manpower. Due to the factory’s location, the company faced a shortage of workforce.
The product to be packed is wrapped fresh crêpes packaged in a thermoformer coming from different production lines. What was our proposal?

The challenge: A robotized packing line for crêpes

The challenge consisted in developing a complete end-of-line packing system using robots guided by artificial vision capable of packing and palletizing the packaged crêpes coming from three lines and placing them in the respective boxes and pallets. Additionally, the limited space designated for this line presents a significant challenge.

The solution: A complete automated case packing and palletizing line for crêpes

The implemented solution includes a picking robot guided by artificial vision, product conveyors from the packaging lines to the packing robot, a Cartesian palletizer for the three lines, and a stretch wrapper.

This state-of-the-art robotized packing line centralizes the operations of three separate crêpe production lines under a unified robotic system. Each line’s cases are identified and sorted, enabling the palletization onto different pallets according to the origin and format of each case.

The result is a compact and reliable line that is adapted to the customer’s production needs and the available space.

Thanks to robotization, the pallets are more stable. The necessity for utilizing angle cartons to fortify the pallets has been entirely eliminated.

What did we achieve?


Optimization of the production area and resources.


Enhanced operational efficiency.


Traceability for all products, cases, and pallets, providing comprehensive oversight and control.


Production stability ensuring consistent and reliable manufacturing output.


Reduced the risk of injuries associated with manual handling of loads.


Cost reductions in stretch film compared to manual banding process.
